Sarah Klang has enjoyed plenty of success in her career to date, with three Top 5 albums in her homeland of Sweden, sold out headline tours, as well as winning at the Swedish Grammy awards twice.
Klang’s live shows are fun and exhilarating, moving and intimate – simultaneously – which has earned her fans all over Europe. After a successful European run in 2022, she’s now announcing new shows for 2023 starting in Brighton, UK on October 25th.
Kicking off a string of new releases for this year is Klang’s latest single ”Mercedes”, a song written to her unborn daughter, just months after discovering she was pregnant. The lyrics assures her daughter that she will forever be there for her. “You can always run to me,” Klang sings on the soaring synth-driven track that radiates with hope and optimism for her daughter’s future.
Klang has always had a talent for autobiographical song writing, like on her acclaimed debut Love in The Milky Way (2018) which won Best Album at the Swedish Grammis awards. It continued on Creamy Blue (2019) her second album that earned another nomination for ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Alternative Pop’ at the Grammis awards, and another nod for ‘European Album Of The Year’ at the IMPALA Awards. While her sound had previously touched upon a mix of influences (‘60 and ‘70s pop, Americana, an undercurrent of country), 2021’s ‘VIRGO’ – her most well-received album to date – then broadened her scope to include elements of ‘80s synth-pop (again winning a Swedish Grammy for Best Alternative Pop). Tastemaker praise followed, notably from i-D, Rolling Stone and Clash.
